If you’re not already a user of the media juggernaut app Plex, then you just got one more reason to start. After two short months in beta, Plex has now officially added podcast support to the app with support for Android Auto. Not only that but one of the most important features of a podcast app is support for offline files and Plex has that too.
Thanks to the offline and Chromecast support you can bring your podcasts with you and listen to them how and where you want. Whether it’s on your Sonos, in the car, or on the beach Plex has you covered. With Plex’s smart rules, you can grab just one episode or make sure you have enough to go through the zombie apocalypse.
So, what if you already use another podcast app? You might be thinking switching over and adding all of your podcats would be too difficult. No worries there as most podcast apps should support exporting your subscriptions in OPML format. Once you export them it’s a piece of cake to import into Plex via the app or web interface.
Plex was already known as being an all in one Swiss Army media player. From movies, TV, to your music collection Plex kept it all at the touch of your fingers. With the addition of podcasts, it has taken another great step forward in simplifying your digital media consumption. Now there is one less app to install, one less app to manage, and one less reason to exit Plex.
With this ease of use and all the other great things Plex is known for, there really is no reason to not use Plex or try out their new podcast feature. So, what are you waiting for?
